A couple of posts ago I wrote about the poor half marathon and how it gets no respect, even though it's a 13.1 mile race, for god's sake. And of course it all stems from the name. Half marathon=1/2race. So I mentioned this to my husband just home from Geneva, jet-lagged but still on his game, who said, "Why not call it a 'Thon'? Which means 'tuna' in French, and so you could call it the 'Big Tuna.'"
I like the sound of it, don't you?
So, as far as I'm concerned, I'm running a Big Tuna in Indianapolis in October.
